In the clos­ing months of the war, two young Ger­man farmhands are con­scripted into the Waf­fen SS. They wit­ness unimag­in­able atroc­i­ties on the col­laps­ing East­ern Front, and one of them makes the fate­ful de­ci­sion to desert. A best­seller in Ger­many, this re­mark­able book of­fers an un­for­get­table vi­sion of war but also finds hu­man­ity in the hor­ror.
